Just one day after the creation of the transparency task force, the University of Iowa has become a little too transparent.

The school’s Center for Diversity and Enrichment mistakenly e-mailed out the names and grade point averages of about 2,000 students involved with the center.

The e-mail was sent to the same 2,000 students it named.

The University of Iowa is notifying the students and offering an apology.

A student’s grade point average is protected under the family and educational rights and privacy act.
